It's important to understand that there is a difference between avoiding tax and minimising tax.
It's only natural to want to minimise the amount of tax you pay and there are many legal ways to do this. At this time of year particularly, you might be considering entering into a tax-effective investment or other tax planning arrangement. However, you need to be cautious of ending up in a tax avoidance scheme. There's nothing to like about the consequences of that!
If you've been investing for a while, or you're quite financially savvy, you might think it couldn't happen to you. Apart from the fact that, on face value, many tax avoidance schemes appear legitimate, often people promoting these arrangements also use pressure tactics or offers of exclusivity to influence you to 'sign on the dotted line' before you have a chance to really investigate what you're getting into or seek any external advice.
It's always worth taking the time to check things out where your money is concerned. A little time and effort now might save you a lot of trouble later. And a lot of money.
